On this Memorial Day Weekend Sunday – today’s blog post is short sweet sharing about the Repeal of the Stamp Act 1766 stamp released today May 29th, 2016.

The “New stamp marks 250th anniversary of repealing the Stamp Act, which began our push to independence.”

The first day ceremony of the Repeal of the Stamp Act 1766 stamp was held at the World Stamp Show-NY 2016 today, May 29th.  The show runs May 28 – June 04, 2016.

The stamp “commemorates the 250th anniversary of the repeal of the Stamp Act, British legislation that American colonists condemned as “taxation without representation.”

From what I read the new Forever® stamps will be available next week.

These stamps are beautiful and I look forward to being able to get them very soon!
